6:20 pm
6:21 pm
here's a live look outside right now. and i said it last night, i'll
6:22 pm
say it again. we have been lucky. this winter. >> oh, yeah. >> we really haven't seen any major winter storms here. we've had these little weak systems. but this one, which will miss us, for the most part, is going to be a monster for eastern new england. anywhere from connecticut north. and i'll show you where in -- why in just a few minutes. we have a little cloud cover in our region. yes, it will thicken up overnight. we'll probably see a little precip coming in overnight. talking 4:00, 5:00 in the morning. just in time for your morning commute. particularly north of the city may be a little slick. 33 in oakland. 36 here. 36 in elkton. but the dew point is still below freezing. 25. so something in there can form in the clouds can fall eventually as frozen precip. temperatures will begin to fall around the region. so temporarily, during the morning hours, north of the city, i'm talking elkton, over to bel air. jacksonville, jarrettsville, hereford, north of timonium. westminster, carroll county, frederick areas, north and west, will see a little snow,
6:23 pm
sleet and freezing rain, early in the morning, which by 10:00, will be just plain rain. north of the city, we have what we call sometimes a cold air damming situation. that means the cold air hugs close to the ground because the hills up there, and it can stay 32, 31 for a few more hours longer than areas south and east, which get their warmer air off the ocean. so south of the city, there are no advisories. only north of the city, a winter weather advisory. 14-mile-an-hour winds in elkton. they're going to get stronger by late tonight. and in an east flow. eventually, when that storm passes, the winds go back to the north and northwest. and at that time, we'll start clearing out. but then maybe just enough cold air at the end of the rain. may see a few flurries of snow late tomorrow night. one system caution a lot of rain in the south. another causing snow across michigan. some spots picked 4 to 6 inches. that's when you cross pennsylvania into new york. this is moving across the
6:24 pm
south, offshore. both of them will combine into one low pressure. some are east of long island. big, big area of low pressure. and high pressure to the north, is going to make it stall. that means we'll have cold air in place. right now, it's 1 below zero in caribou, maine. boston now, in the upper 20s and low 30s. so you have to warm moisture, over top of that cold surface. you're going to get heavy, heavy snow. this is the area where we think the heaviest of the snow will be. boston, southern new hampshire, southern vermont. much of massachusetts, northern connecticut. and probably providence north. new york will be in the southern edge of that. but new york could see, 4 to 6, 7 inches of that. eastern long island could get 10 to 18 inches. philadelphia may see an inch or two for our region. northern maryland may see just a coating. and that's why they have the winter weather advisory in effect for those regions. two times, we can see a little frozen precip. early tomorrow morning and again late tomorrow night as the cold air wraps around. north of us, that's where the
6:25 pm
winter storm warnings and the blizzard watch is in effects for the boston area. mild air south of us will eventually get in here, but not until sunday. saturday will be a windy and cold day. that storm wrapping up, brings that cold air down. but it will be sunny on saturday. so north of us, from main down to northern jersey and north of philadelphia, all snow. flurry activities to the west of us. and generally just rain here from jersey through philly area. and eastern sections of maryland. it's a big storm for new england. in fact, this could be record- breaking for some of those folks. north winds, invisiblely, 10 knots. will be picking up later. and a gale warning by later tomorrow night. so for tonight. clouds moving in, 33. maybe some suburban areas could get down to 30 with a mix there. and just light rain. 46? rain. not expecting a lot of rain here. it may end as a little bit of snow shower activity tomorrow night as it gets colder air coming in, wrapped around the storm. it's called the wraparound, dryer, cold air. may see a little of that late friday night. and then sunshine, windy and
